Bradford on Avon Area Liberal Democrats announce Wiltshire Council candidates fro May 2021
Bradford on Avon Area Liberal Democrat members have selected candidates for four Wiltshire Council divisions for the elections in May 2021, as follows:
Winsley and Westwood: Richard Mann
Richard lives in Winsley, is a retired GP working part time as a medical educator, Chair of the Winsley amateur dramatic group and active on Winsley Parish Council’s Climate Change Advisory Group. He is married to Tessa, who is an Anglican priest serving in local churches.
Holt: Trevor Carbin
Trevor has represented Holt & Staverton division on Wiltshire Council since 2009, and Staverton and Holt villages before that on the District Council. He has been active recently on local projects ranging from the Staverton butterfly garden to Speedwatch, and supporting Holt Parish Council in their effort to get highways improvements.
Bradford on Avon North: Tim Trimble
Tim has lived in Bradford for almost five years, having retired as a geo-scientist. He has been an active member of the Community Emergency volunteers for the past four years. His main interest is in low carbon transport, and community energy schemes, which he is investigating through his involvement in Climate Friendly Bradford, and hopes to develop as a councillor.
Bradford on Avon South: Sarah Gibson
Sarah has lived in Bradford for seven years and was elected to Wiltshire Council in 2017. Her background in architecture and urban planning is invaluable in looking at the town’s strategic aims, such as the potential to re-develop the health centre site, as well as assisting residents with concerns often relating to highways or planning issues.
Retiring as a councillor in 2021 will be Cllr Jim Lynch. He commented: “It has been a great pleasure to serve as councillor for Bradford on Avon North since 2017. I have taken the decision not to seek re-election in 2021 but I look forward to continuing to fulfil my roles and responsibilities for the coming year, and remaining fully engaged with the community thereafter.
